Cut from the classic serve-and-volley mould that sharply defined his era, Fred Stolle was deeply admired by his peers for his tenacity as a competitor and his fundamental decency. A superb fast-court player who excelled on grass, the Australian demonstrated his versatility with a Roland Garros triumph. An outstanding doubles strategist who was unfailingly solid on the volley, he took 16 of his 18 majors in that forum. Stolle ventured into coaching and broadcasting, distinguishing himself ably in both capacities.
